This is a second-year course. You will continue to build upon what you learned in ASL 1 and receive deeper insight into ASL and Deaf Culture beyond the classroom. We will follow the format of Dawn Sign Press’s “Signing Naturally” series. Topics revolve around sharing information about ourselves and our environment. Grammar is introduced in context. You will learn strategies to help you maintain a conversation. Interactive activities will reinforce what you’ve learned. A conversational curriculum requires you to be an active learner.
